In this article, the author advises agents on how to tell when they are selling a package holiday. The meaning of a package is defined by the Package Travel Regulations 1992 (PTRs) and the Civil Aviation Regulations 1995: Air Travel Organizer's Licensing (ATOL). Selling a package as principal can mean that travel companies can fall foul of the more onerous liability imposed on organizers of packages under the PTRs and, if the package includes flights, require an ATOL.
